Around the World with 80 Schools
Around the World with 80 Schools is an awesome project thought up and developed by Silvia Tolisano. To put it simply it aims to circle the globe by connecting, via Skype, 80 schools from all around the world. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to broaden our horizons and, like Silvia Tolisano herself points out, to "develop cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with learners of other cultures".
Sivia also set up a Wiki that "gives participants a central place for information, time lines, pictures of the video conferences, links, etc." so that all participants can collaborate and document their journeys.
Below is the embedded updated version from Google Maps taken from Silvia's blog - Langwitches showing the map of participants. The blue lines between the different schools show the connections already completed.
